Open Trench Sewer Repair


While we would almost always prefer to perform trenchless sewer line replacement, there are times when it’s just not conducive to doing the job right. Sometimes, for whatever reason, we have to perform an open trench sewer repair (OTSR). Rest assured, if we do have to trench the entire run of new sewer line, Sewer Friendly will put your landscaping back to its original state and within a week there will be little to no indication that we were even there.

What is Open Trench Sewer Repair?

Open trench repair involves excavating a portion of the ground to access and repair the damaged sewer line. This method is often used for larger repairs or for replacing an old, damaged sewer line with a new one. During the repair process, the damaged section of the sewer line is removed and replaced with a new, functional line.

Advantages of Open Trench Repair


OTSR provides the most accessibility to the damaged sewer line. This allows the repair team to thoroughly inspect the line and make the necessary repairs with ease.

Open Trench Sewer Repair is Effective

It is a proven and effective method of repairing damaged sewer lines. It provides a permanent solution and can extend the life of your sewer line for many years to come.
